Waiting for the Feature length version
25 September 2020 | by janneuburgerjnSee all my reviews

It is very clear that this is a Proof of concept for a feature and in some ways it harms this short. There are so many plotlines hinted at but none are explored. The relationship between the two Kings is the driving force for the plot yet it is never established, as we don't once see them together.

Also the German in this short is horrible, oh my god. If you want to make language accurate that is awesome but at least cast appropiate actors. I know it's a short Film but they had language consultants and i Imagine it easier to cast German actors than teach other actors how to speak broken German.

Still with all the flaws I'm looking forward to the Feature Film because the premise of the Story is one that we've never seen on the big screen
